The words “estate planning” are enough to send some people to sleep, or at least to another room. Reckoning with one’s mortality is never an easy task and is one that too many people put off until too late.
However, planning for the inevitable is necessary for those who want to control their personal destinies and the distribution of their assets for the benefit of their families.
Since 1976, Lewis Law Office, P.C. has helped families avoid the time-consuming and costly probate process as well as minimize estate tax liability. For more information, call our law office in Lee’s Summit at 816-875-4516 or 877-549-3511 toll free.
